Hey friends. Guess what?! Oh… You figured it out already, huh? Well La-Te-Da mr/mrs smart guy. Just because there is a pic of a finished painting and this happens to be an ‘art blog’ doesn’t mean I couldn’t be talking about something else like….. uh I don’t know…. politics? or some other important topic. Gosh! Ummm…. Well anyway I finished a painting yesterday. It’s most likely finished. I might have to make the background darker, but I really want to be finished with this piece. So, we’ll just go ahead and slap a figurative ‘finished’ sticker on this bad boy.
Alright on to my question for the bestest followers in the whole wide world- suggested titles? Most of the time I decide on a title during the painting process. This piece however, I’m drawing a blank. I keep calling it Ghost Rap (because that’s what it says next to the happy apple) but that seems pretty lame. I’m also considering Goblin P and U Can Dy (hehe). These titles (while hilarious/confusing) don’t convey any meaning or significance. So any help you guys can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys. How’s it going? Yeah…. Really?! She said what!!?? Hey, hey, shut up a minute, I want to tell you about this painting. It’s a painting of my wedding day. I married wolverine while being really, really shiny. Just kidding. Although my husband is super cool like wolverine, he doesn’t have adamantium covered bones that project from his knuckles, however, I did get married in a shiny, yellow jump suit… Alright, alright you got me, it wasn’t very shiny…
Anyway, back to the painting, I put this painting together with the thought that it looked like Wolverine and April were getting married. I used colored pencil on Strathmore drawing paper for this piece. I really enjoy the vibrancy of colored pencils but I can’t seem to get a really crisp look with them. I may redo this piece (or a variation on this piece) with watercolor. I’m not going to define this painting or say exactly what it means to me because I want my super awesome/smart readers to find their own meaning in this piece (you should totally tell me what it means to you). Thanks for stopping by! Comments are always welcome!
